Kathy at Lizziejane gave my this award. I am really pleased that my humble little blog should bring a smile to some one's face.
Now I get to Pay the award forward to another five brilliant bloggers.
These five bloggers also light up my day and I look forward to visiting their blogs. Here are the rules that go with this award:
5. Queen Frog
So the rules are as follows
1) You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award, creativity, design, interesting material, and also contributions to the blogger community, no matter what language.
2) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.
3) Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.
4) Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show a link to the “Arte y pico” blog , so everyone will know the origin of this award.
5) To show these rules.
I came home from work early. I just couldn't settle to anything while the bag buzzed around in my head. I wanted to get it stitched up so badly. I was desperate to take it with me for social knitting, as well as the wonderful bag that Josie made me. It's perfect. I won the material in a giveaway and because I am (still) stitching challenged she made it for me. What a star girl she is.
The bag doesn't quite look like the original. I got a bit confused with the lining fabric which was the same as my outside fabric, a mistake for a beginner believe me, so the handles have ended up inside instead of outside and I have some folded over bits inside which are probably not meant to be there, but I am happy with it. I also discovered that it is very easy to sew the wrong bit to something else. I thought a simple rectangle with handles would be tres easy. Hmmm, not quite. Still my first bag and it only took me a couple of hours to put together. I love it.
Peri supervised until the photo shoot he's trying to pretend that he's a bit bored with it all. Yeah right!
